model 18 oil pump

Posted by tom_hallah at August 28. 2017

Hi,

I've replaced the oil feed pipe on my model 18. Oil is flowing to the pump fine, but no oil is coming off the drip feed spout in the oil pump.

Has anyone any ideas why?

Thanks,

Tom.

What year?

I'm not sure what you mean by the "drip feed spout".

What is the year of the Model 18 you are working on?

Hi,

It's a 1929, with the oil control on the bottom of the pump, and it's the spout in the top of the sight glass, where it drips in the chamber below. The oil is coming to the pump and the screw which comes out of the top.

Tom.

Outside my area of knowledge. Have you got a copy of Radco's Vintage Motorcyclist's Workshop? That has lots of good stuff on Best & Lloyd oil pumps and the like.
